“One of the biggest artists in Australia you’ve never heard of.” – The Brag
The thoughts that skim across the surface of our minds are stones that usually, eventually sink. Jacob Lee, not only graced with the ability to catch these stones, has discovered how to keep them afloat, drag them to shore & carve them into something even more beautiful. Jacob Lee has released four independent projects since his debut in 2015, accumulating an impressive 130 million streams.
Mentioned by The Brag as “one of the biggest artists in Australia you’ve never heard of”, Jacob has deliberately flown under the scope of the industry, engaging with fans in a manner that has created a community & social network all artists desire. Recently homebound from supporting Dennis Lloyd, as well as returning from his sold-out UK / Euro Tour, Jacob has disappeared yet again to finalise Conscience, his second full-length studio album. With the title track released April 5th & ‘Zen’ on its way May 24th, Jacob has described his upcoming record as the perfect evolution from Philosophy, touching on topics he’s wanted to lyricise his entire life.
If this wasn’t enough, Jacob’s aspirations to become an author will soon be made manifest with Jacob Lee’s Book of Lyricism (Vol 1), launching throughout 2019, as well as an abundance of visuals, international touring & perhaps even another full-length record.
With an appetite for creation & an aptitude for words, Jacob has found himself the landing pad for a myriad of international artists, becoming the primary melody-writer & lyricist for the likes of Will Sparks, Reece Low, Marco Farouk, Tom Enzy, Buzzmeisters, Trifo, Swede Dreams & more. Consumed by the idea that music requires landscape, meaning & purpose, Jacob has taken it upon himself to step within the shoes of others, conjuring stories they’d otherwise never had found words for, relating to them in ways only a dear friend could. Chatting closely with Music Matters Media, Jacob explains, “I wish to be the most profound writer in music”, and in just a few more years, he very well may be.
